In the fall of 2008 I took a photography class at a local junior college. I took this photo (above) for an assignment in the class.
It's a picture of the shop that stood on my in-laws' property. To my children, this was their grandpa's shop. Originally it was just a concrete slab with a roof and no walls. Apricots were cut and prepared for drying there. My husband's family had apricot trees on their property. And they would sell dried apricots. They were delicious! I remember cutting apricots with the family many years ago.
Eventually, my father-in-law added walls to the concrete slab and it became "The Shop." That's what it was called. At one time, there was a cabinet shop inside this building too.
The shop stood on my in-laws' 4-acre property which included their home and garage. The shop was behind the garage. This is a picture of the front of the shop.
My in-laws moved to this property when my husband was a toddler. So, he grew up there. Sadly, there was a fire at my in-laws' home several years ago. After the fire, my widowed mother-in-law moved away.
I'm glad I had the opportunity to take photos of "The Shop" on my in-laws' property many years ago.
Thanks for stopping by!
